30hands app for storytelling and presentation

Different from other presentation apps, 30hands Mobile focuses on the power of storytelling. Like pages in a book, photos or images are dragged around the desktop into the order of the story. Next, the teacher or student records audio over each image. Finally, the story or presentation can be published to the device’s photo area or uploaded to a 30hands collaborative learning site.

Comic-Con: James Frey to Introduce 'Endgame' Universe With Panel, Puzzle, Interactive Game (Exclusive)

Comic-Con: James Frey to Introduce 'Endgame' Universe With Panel, Puzzle, Interactive Game (Exclusive) | immersive media | Scoop.it
Endgame is James Frey's upcoming book, but to call it only a book would be vastly oversimplifying things.
While the first novel will hit stores Oct. 7, Frey's project is made up of the books (a planned trilogy), e-books, a puzzle, a game, a treasure hunt and an upcoming movie. The first YA book, set in the near present day, follows 12 teens as catastrophic events lead them on a worldwide search for three ancient keys that will save not only their bloodlines but the world.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 21, 4:22 PM

Colleague Michael Harris wrote this blog post recently and I couldn't stop cracking up! I laughed so hard I had to read the story to my husband Tim. He laughed just as hard.


Michael uses storytelling in his sales training and he uses this story to demonstrate why it works. And to point out the difference between 'corporate speak' and storytelling. Imagine telling this story in corporate language. We'd be bored to tears.


But here's another way to think about this story: we all have at least one story like this. A story when we screwed up big time. A story about a time we failed. A story about a near miss. A story about good friends who stick around even after misadventures. 


All of these stories have a place in business. Because they make you human. When shared authentically they form and deepen relationships. They let us know that even when we screw up, there is redemption. This is how we learn from others -- about what not to do, and about being human at work.


Sharing ups and downs helps us build deeper and stronger relationships. It might surprise you to experience how showing your vulnerability actually generates more trust and respect in you and for you. When we hide our failures from others, we idealize ourselves while separating ourselves from others at the same time. Not good.


So read this article and go have a good laugh. Then ask yourself, "What story do I share in return?" Michael's story should spark one within you.


Capture that story and share it at the right time in a business setting. You'll be glad you did.

Fab Storytelling Secrets From 3 TED Talks

Fab Storytelling Secrets From 3 TED Talks | immersive media | Scoop.it

"When I decided to write an article on brand storytelling inspired by TED talks, I went about it all wrong.

 

Scouring YouTube for tactics, elements, and components of brand storytelling, I was aiming to find five or ten (or 17) actionable tips that you can use to tell you brand’s story.

 

I was already boring myself to death and I hadn’t even begun to write.

Julie Neumark curates “over 25 TED talks” into 3 faves by Andrew Stanton, JJ Abrams, & Nancy Duarte with themes of “wonder, mystery, possibility, connection, and engagement.”

Ken Schneider's curator insight, July 23, 8:49 AM

Very good POV on story and some interesting TED Talks - especially Nancy Duarte. Worth your time!

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 23, 3:37 PM

Fellow curator Gregg Morris discovered this gem for his Story and Narrative curation and I thought you should know about it too.


3 TED talks are featured here and they are all worth watching. The first one from Andrew Stanton on the Clues To A Great Story I've curated before. It's a keeper. 


The second one from JJ Abrams is new for me -- and I love it. It's all about adding mystery into the storytelling toolbox. As the author of this post Julie Newmark says, "For example, creating puzzles to solve, challenges and even small adventures within your brand stories, you are involving customers and inspiring them to use their minds together as they seek to discover more. Engagement and connection to your brand is the point here and using mystery creates the potential for taking it all to a deeper level." Right on!!


And the third video from Nancy Duarte focuses on one of the most powerful dynamics for moving people to action -- before and after pictures.


Have fun with these and incorporate these lessons into your business storytelling.

Lauren Davis:  "Earlier this month, Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling released a short piece of prose that offered a quick look at Harry Potter and his Hogwarts classmates as adults. The response indicated that fans are still hungry for stories of the wizarding world—and perhaps it's time for someone other than Rowling to give it to them."

I really like the transmedia storytelling idea, but simultaneous transmedia? i'm not so sure...what happens to the unfiltered narration experience? i'm more for the before and after. unless films are actually written with transmedia in mind. simply transmedia-ing existing films won't work. at least not for the core story.

'There's a reason Frozen was the highest-grossing animated film ever....

 

What it comes down to is that people love Frozen. Any online parodies,interpretations, or additional kind of videos the movie has generated only serve to illustrate this. Sure, other people may benefit from these videos’ success a little bit, but it’s Disney who benefits the most in the long run. Essentially, Disney decided to look at these viral videos as free advertising for the movie. And with the titanic amount of money Frozen has brought in (well over a billion worldwide), it’s hard not to suggest that the film’s online presence had at least a small hand in this. Basically, Disney has figured out that online engagement only advances their brand...'

"The moment in history we focused in on was when narrative biographies started coming out in the 19th century. Biographies up to that time had been lists of dates and 'just-the-facts' and then you saw famous people and wealthy people commissioning biographers to write narrative biographies. And the most famous of them was this guy James Boswell," Lider said.

"So we thought, what if we could democratize this? I think a big story of Google and technology is the bringing of things to people that were formerly only available to the elite. So the idea that we could be your personal storyteller, be your personal biographer, help you articulate the narrative arcs of points of your life was really exciting to us."
